Good food, but served very quickly. We were told that this is normal in Peru. No time to enjoy the lingering flavours, next course arrived!

This was another great experience while our time in Cusco. The location of this place is incredible plus the ambiance rivals a top-notch restaurant in the US. The service is good and the food is extraordinary. Starting from the bread to the appetizers and the main course, everything is delicious. I would highly recommend this place on your visit to...

This lovely restaurant is tucked away in the Museum courtyard. We had dinner in the evening which was very romantic. The menu is extensive from appetizers to desserts. We were with a group and everyone had something different. The food presentations were truly works of art and delicious. A soloist played a wooden harp - very beautiful. The very best... More

MAP is the cafe of the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art (MAP) in Cusco. The museum is housed in a colonial mansion on the site of an Inca building in the delightful Plaza de las Nazarenas. In the beautiful, peaceful courtyard you can find the MAP cafe which serves excellent Peruvian cuisine. Three different people recommended it to us when they... More

Map Cafe is located in the courtyard of the Columbia artifacts museum in Cusco, Peru. We went last night for our last meal in Peru and I am so glad we did. The setting was super modern inside an old historic setting. The wait staff were super friendly and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. I recommend the mushroom ravioli... More

If you get the chance do not miss out on a heavenly dining experience at this wonderful restaurant. Not only is the food amazing, it is a visual feast - each course was exquisitely presented, I have never seen anything quite like it. From the moment we walked in we were enchanted by the candlelit ambience and the lilting sounds... More

Walked there for dinner from our hotel near Plaza d'Armas in the pouring rain. The staff was gracious and attentive, the food **excellent**, and the atmosphere quiet and elegant. Definitely worth the meal.

This was one of our best meals during our trip to Peru (everything from bread to mains to desserts were all top notch). Although this is an upscale restaurant our server was very welcoming and provided exceptional, attentive service. The location is within a museum so has very interesting surroundings while you dine.
